  • 1 pound of jumbo shrimp (about 16 to 20), cleaned and deveined
  • 1/2 pound of parpadelle or spaghetti
  • One pint of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 to 6 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese



1. Put a large pot of water on to boil for the spaghetti. Once water boils, add pasta and cook according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add shrimp and garlic and stir-fry for about 4 minutes until the shrimp is barely pink.
3. Add tomatoes to the skillet and cook until they break down, about 7-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
4. Toss shrimp mixture together with cooked pasta in a medium bowl. Divide on to four dinner plates or large bowls and top each serving with a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese.

One serving = 4 to 5 shrimp + 1 ½ cup pasta with tomatoes
